    The Masked Singer may not follow rules or logic, but that hasn’t stopped viewers from tuning in to the viral sensation. Tonight, another nutso season of FOX’s “who-sung-it” comes to an end as the identities of the final three contestants, Black Swan, Chameleon, and Piglet, are revealed. One lucky singer will leave with the coveted Golden Mask Trophy, but perhaps more importantly, one judge will be awarded the Golden Ear award for having the least-terrible “first impression” guesses.
